Be sure you’re working with people who are up-to-date in the Internet / IT / Marketing / Design-Graphics world. No one does it all, but some can come close. Try me. By nature I’m an analyst and innovator. (The rare ENTP personality)
Beyond a formal education in Mechanical and Systems Engineering, plus Marketing, I’ve stayed current with university-level schooling in computer science, advanced mathematics, programming, and business strategy. My business life began in high-ticket B2B sales ($50K++ sales), skills that carry on in teaching and training.
Today, I take several university courses each year via MOOCs (massive open online courses). To keep grounded, I regularly teach life skills and financial literacy to high schoolers through Junior Achievement. I’m on the regional JA board of directors.

When you hire me for your internet/web projects you get a business technologist with a long and deep business sense of the internet.
Out of college I got into management consulting as a corporate headhunter of technical talent, ultimately specializing in Electronic Warfare with my own operation. When the early web erupted I shifted into marketing and strategic planning for small businesses (<< 200 people) and far away from the war industry.
By 1993, as the worldwide web began, I saw how the internet was going to change everything about business communications, including our personal lives. Consulting projects quickly morphed into a combo of internet programming & marketing.
Because I’ve been through several business cycles and through every iteration of the internet era, you’ll get a ‘web guy’ who can help you stay on top of what’s possible and what’s worthy and timeless.
Note: I’ve always kept an insider’s view of technology. Friends in research laboratories across America commonly tuned me in to their work for the future. Years before they came out I’d learned of pocket sized devices that could telemeter real-time video across space and time. Nothing any smartphone doesn’t do now, but this was the late ’80s and early ’90s.
[I’m still shooting that innovation curl. There’s so much more to come; the future’s going to be terrific.]
